Sony has announced PlayStation Stars, a new loyalty program that will reward players for completing different activities. It will be available to join for free later this year and involves campaigns like “Monthly Check-In” where you play any game and receive a reward. Other campaigns involve unlocking certain Trophies, winning tournaments or even being the first to Platinum a title in your time zone.
Players will essentially earn Loyalty Points that are redeemable for PSN wallet funds and certain products from the PlayStation Store. PlayStation Plus subscribers enrolled in the program can even earn points from purchasing things in the store. There are also new “digital collectibles” which are “digital representations of things that PlayStation fans enjoy, including figurines of beloved and iconic characters from games and other forms of entertainment, as well as cherished devices that tap into Sony’s history of innovation.”
Members can always look forward to new collectibles, both of the ultra-rare variety or “something surprising to collect just for fun.” Sony notes that these aspects only represent the beginning of the program, which will evolve with time. It’s currently in early testing and will roll out regionally in phases later this year. Stay tuned for more details in the coming months.
